Name Change Signifies Move Back to Company Roots

Hesse Mechatronics, Inc. (formerly Hesse & Knipps), the Americas subsidiary of Hesse GmbH, leading manufacturer of high-speed fine pitch wedge bonders and fully automatic heavy wire bonders for the backend semiconductor industry, formally announces the company’s recent name change from Hesse & Knipps, Inc. to Hesse Mechatronics, Inc., effective January 1, 2013.

The name change is a move back to the company’s roots, named Hesse GmbH when first launched in 1986. In addition, the new name signifies more accurately what the company does - which is to develop and manufacture the most advanced thin wire wedge bonders and heavy wire bonders in the world, utilizing mechatronics, or a multidisciplinary engineering approach that combines mechanical, electrical, control and computer engineering to achieve the best possible equipment performance.


Hesse Mechatronics, a privately held worldwide company based in Paderborn, Germany, is a leading designer and manufacturer of high speed fine pitch wedge bonders, heavy wire bonders and complementary equipment for semiconductor backend assembly. The company’s automatic wedge bonders handle both light and heavy wire applications with aluminum and gold round wire from 12.5 micron (.0005) to 500 microns (.020) in diameter, in addition to ribbon wire from 6 x 35 microns up to .3 x 2 mm, including HCR™ (High Current Ribbon). The company’s heavy wire bonders also handle copper wire and ribbon. The company’s product line also includes dispensers, ultrasonic flip chip bonders, standard or customized indexers with or without handling systems, manufacturing process monitoring systems for interfacing with the company’s equipment and commercial software packages.
